What do serving ratings think about 22 year REME (Army) joining on a direct scheme as PO's

It'll be a lot easier for you initially with 22 years of military experience behind you. As for resentment, if there is any towards the DEPOTs- which I doubt there will be- there would be much less towards you, as you've got 22 years of service behind you.

Ships' engines are bigger than those in a humpity bumpity army truck. You'll need a hand to lift some bits.

I'd probably nick named pongo for the duration haha
The nickname will be Perc or Percy. Subordinates should call you PO or Petty Officer.

Just don't expect to get away with Army levels of personal hygiene. Where Percy goes, the pong goes.
